How to create your own ecommerce store, find product, get traffic and start sales

hi guys! as you know im a passionate jetsurfer but i am also doing
ecommerce selling on amazon and shopify and today i am going to show
you how you can make money by opening your own shopify store, what
tools you need and what traffic sources you can use.

As a fresh example I will be using my new surfing fashion store that
I just opened, take a look. It’s called Noshoes store and it’s selling
funny tshirts http://noshoes.store
It’s a fully functional website so in case you want to support me and
what we do at jetsurfingnation feel free to buy a funny tshirt for
yourself or your friends!

Allright! lets get started! To keep this video quick I will be only
showing you essential tools you need, assuming you already have a
basic understanding of ecommerce. If you have never done any ecommerce
before, then the best is to first pass my short video course at
http://sellslikehotcakes.co that will teach you everything you need to know
from a to z.

So what tools we will need.
1. account at shopify which is a biggest ecommerce platform
2. a domain which you can buy at namecheap and then connect directly to shopify
3. fiverr account which is a biggest marketplace of freelancers that
will help you customise the store and do the designs
4. and finally instagram and facebook ads account to drive traffic
5. and of course i would suggest to get sellslikehotcakes.co account as
well so you can be using the research tools that we developed to help
you find the products

Now lets go through the store i created showing you first major
elements that you need and what to pay attention too.

Next you need to choose the products to sell and the niche. I would
not recommend trying to copy me because surfing is way too small of a
niche. To choose the niche for you and find the idea you can use several tools.

Passionate niches tool
niche finder and google trends
aliexpress top sellers
junglescout

After you chose the product you need to choose the way to sell, there are 3 ways
1. Dropshipping – basically the customer is placing an order and you
go re-order it from the supplier on aliexpress
2. Print on demand – the one that i use in my store using teescape app
3. Amazon FBA or your own fullfillment. When you go big its the best way

Creating a product is what we are going to discuss next. There are several ways:
Sourcing
whitelabelling
create your own designs – fiverr

Now lets quickly go through my store and the design and apps that I am using.
I am showing you all the apps I use and how they help me with the conversions

Finally getting traffic. There are several ways to get traffic:
facebook ads (Directly or via agencies like Vantage app)
retargeting ads (Retarget app)
instagram and youtube influencers (directly or via famebit)

Here is a sample email to instagram Influencers
I’m Mike from Pug Lovers Club… maybe you heard of me from
my youtube channel where I review different pug products.
I’ve been following you for a while and was wondering if you’d be
interested in doing a sponsored post about my new pug dress / Frisbee?
If you’re interested, we can send you free sample for review/unboxing,
and can discuss
further compensation!

Good luck!

P.S. If you have never done any ecommerce
before, then the best is to first pass my short video course at

from a to z.

FBA: Personal Account vs Company account? Pro&Cons?

Claudia says at 19:39 et
Professional for sure! Get LLC State Registration to protect yourself legally. Important: To Sell In USA you don’t have to live there or have USA company/Bank acc! Plus you get all the features of PPC, Lightning deals etc.
Cons? Small monthly amazon fee.

I'm new here.. Quick one.. What's FOB ??

Claudia says at 21:16 et
"Free On Board" is a term in international commercial law specifying at what point respective obligations, costs, and risk involved in the delivery of goods shift from the seller to the buyer. Indicating "FOB port" means that the seller pays for transportation of the goods to the port of shipment, plus loading costs. The buyer pays cost of marine freight transport, insurance, unloading, and transportation from the arrival port to the final destination. The passing of risks occurs when the goods are loaded on board at the port of shipment.

Should i lower the price than competition? We all sell same things. Thanks for replies

The race to the bottom is a dangerous game. Instead of lowering price try to offer unique product, a bundle, a set, to stand out from competition. You lowering the price will just make other sellers lower their price as well, and now everybody is making less profit with no added benefit.

Think of doing a bundle or a set and RISE the price, not lower it

Andres, what "this"? Shopify drop shipping model works worldwide of course and chinese suppliers ship worldwide.. AMazon FBA works wit many countries as well (not all). But you can sell on AMazon USA for example even if you dont live in usa. its not a problem!

Here is a new video i added "I don’t have TIME! + surprising ending" to address the most common question I get "I don't have enough time!" "I don't have time to learn!" "I dont have time to watch 12 hours of videos!" I dont have time to research a product!" "I dont have time to find a supplier" I dont have time to open my own ecommerce store!"
